The Odd Life of Timothy Green, directed by Peter Hedges, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2012 while The Amateur by Edward Klein was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Bad Education. If you liked videogames you were probably playing The Darkness II or Elf Defense Eng.
